Overview
More
In 2008, a car park in a forgotten corner of Dublin was transformed into a living experiment that would bridge art and science, unleashing their combined creative potential. A groundbreaking initiative pioneered by Trinity College Dublin, Science Gallery is a new kind of space where art and science collide – a porous membrane between the university and the city. Since opening in 2008, over 1 million visitors to Science Gallery have experienced 26 unique exhibitions – ranging from living art experiments to materials science and from the future of the human race to the future of play.

We visited the Science gallery on a rainy Tuesday today with 2 teenagers and an 8 year old. Very disappointing. Mainly because the staff were all too busy talking to each other upstairs to offer us any assistance with experiments that required a log in...More

This place has a lot to offer considering it is free entry. It is very interesting and covers a lot of hot topics - which are all up to date (2018). It involves a lot of new sciences and philosophies. There is a small shop...More

Visited here today with 3 kids aged 11,10 and 8. They were only mildly interested in the place. It’s ok but not great. Could be so much better.

We had no idea what to expect from this gallery. Turned out to be an interesting place to take part in some interactive exhibits with moderators who work for (volunteer at?) the gallery. Our family had a good time. Hard to believe it was free.

It was fun and very interactive (current theme is sound) but I would have expected to learn something in a science gallery, which I did not.

Hi there Cian, Thanks for getting in touch. At Science Gallery Dublin our target age group is 15-25, so we're not really suitable for very young children. We'd love a visit in a few years though!
